"an erotic tale of survival and sacrifice"

Charlie has hit rock bottom.

A little over a year ago, she was wealthy and about to marry into one of the galaxy's most prestigious families. Now she's penniless working in a seedy bar on a miserable fringe planet inhabited by humans and the animalistic Xorn race. Her meager wages barely afford her enough to provide food and shelter for herself and her younger brother, yet she refuses to do what the other barmaids do to supplement her income. When her brother incurs a huge gambling debt to Lynx - one of the dreaded Xorn, Charlie calls upon him to work out a payment arrangement. With no funds and few options, Charlie reluctantly enters into an agreement with Lynx -- A bargain in which the debt will be settled with pleasure and pain.

"The Thirst" is upon Lynx and only Charlie can satisfy his need. He knew the moment he held her hand that she was the one for him -- if only she didn't despise his touch. Desperate for the sustenance that only Charlie can provide, Lynx resorts to a plan that leaves Charlie no choice but to submit to his will. As Charlie finds herself mysteriously drawn to Lynx, her fear of him grows even more. Can Lynx convince Charlie that they are soul mates? Or will his fierce desires drive her away from him forever?

CHARLIE'S BARGAIN is an erotic tale of survival and sacrifice. Although the main characters are clearly motivated by the need for self preservation, they also manage to put the needs of others before themselves. Charlie, though nave at times always faced her problems head on and never shirked her responsibilities. Lynx chose exile over living without love and his honesty nearly cost him everything. They were both willing to die for the welfare and safety of someone else and for that reason alone, readers will root for their happiness.
